Second time he’s asked this. And this time while she’s talking about her new children’s book.
Remember that this is the guy who hosted the odious “The Man Show” in the early aughts.
And he apparently also asked her husband. Why would either one even consent to another interview with this leering creep?
No kidding. And, now that my brain is coffee-unfogging, this is such a racial thing, “Blacks as sexual animals” and all that. Just, yuck.
And a misogynist “woman as sexual reward for a man’s success” thing too.
Kimmel’s a glorified drive time shock jock in a suit.
And a toxic masculinity “surely killing enemies in a battle gives men a boner” thing too.
If extrajudicial executions make you horny (and make no mistake, that’s exactly what this was even if you believe it was justified) then you are a gross person.
From looking at footage from abroad it did indeed look like it gave a whole lot of men and women boners. At the time there was a fake Orwell quote going around about killing enemies but I thought the chanting crowds with flags reminded me of looking from pig to man and man to pig and being unable to tell the difference.
Nationalism is a hell of a drug.
Fellow Man Show alum Adam Carolla’s brand of comedy hasn’t held up well to evolving social norms either. His last major project was a feature-length whine festival about how terribly oppressed right-wing speakers and comedians are on college campuses these days.
Doesn’t surprise me at all.
Jimmy Kimmel used to “cover” sports on a local radio station here in the greater Los Angeles area. I’m using scare quotes because unlike his successor, he’d simply read off of LA Times articles with zero attribution. It wasn’t a shtick; it was plagiarism.
I remember feeling the same way.
